UVA 90-91 the 20th most dominant team of the NCAA era

That was the assessment from The Athletic. I've linked the article, though it is pay-walled. Here is the relevant blurb, which was accompanied by a picture of Staley.

20. Virginia 1990-91
Of the three Final Fours to which Dawn Staley led Virginia over her stellar four-year careers, only her junior season culminated in a national title game appearance. With Staley averaging 14.6 points and 6.9 assists, the Cavaliers were unbeaten in ACC play and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Tonya Cardoza exploded for 16 points to help Virginia squeeze past third-seeded Connecticut and advance to the national title game against Tennessee. The Vols prevailed in overtime, but Staley’s 28-point performance was so impressive that she became the only player from the losing team in NCAA Women’s Final Four history to win the MOP award.
